Foundation of LovePosted: January 2, 2012
“If we do not know how to take care of ourselves and to love ourselves, we cannot take care of the people we love. Loving oneself is the foundation for loving another person.” from Thich Nhat Hanh’s Your True Home
As a parent, I’m role modeling self-care to my daughter. I cannot expect her to learn from just my words alone. I must show her how it is done – or not done. The behavior must match the words. This is not a simple task.
